Valentines…

Pam Sparks Typewriter Valentine

I had great fun using stamps and dies to make Valentines last week! Our family party was yesterday so now I can show what I made. I don’t have a picture of one of them and two others didn’t get finished! I always run out of time!

This typewriter (CG280 My Type) card is Hero Arts stamps except for the row of hearts…it’s from Printworks.  I used the Misti to stamp so I could get this super, wonderful black inking!  love it!

Pam Sparks World Valentine

This one is the size of an ATC and uses Reverse Confetti’s world die and an Avery Elle sentiment.  The background embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.  The woodgrain stamp is from All Night Media.

Pam Sparks Airplane Valentine

I made a few of these for the younger grandsons…Avery Elle stamp and die sets and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp. Silver Wink of Stella Brush Marker on the wings and more.

Pam Sparks Fishing Valentine

Here’s the Memory Box Rectangle Frames die with a partial cut heart die, also from Memory Box.  The sentiment stamps and Little Bits Fishing pole and Fish are from Taylored Expressions.  The background is the All Night Media woodgrain stamp again.

Pam Sparks Tree Ring Valentine

I was inpsired by Sarah G for this card. I used the Winnie and Walter Tree Ring stamp, a Memory Box heart die, WPlus9 you die and the Hero Arts sentiment again.  Oh the arrow stamp is from My Favorite Things.

I made envelopes for all the Valentines using the old penmanship lined paper we had in grade school. Fun!

Whew, I could’ve made Valentines for a couple more weeks… it’s like Christmas cards once I get started I don’t want to quit! lol

Now, it’s time to clean up! lol All 17 of the grandkids loved the Valentine exchange party we had yesterday afternoon and hey, the adults had a great time too!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you. Happy stamping!

(the typewriter I used is CG280, I linked to a bigger typewriter by HA below but it doesn’t come with the 3 messages that CG280 does, if you can find it)
